Own Your Love Song


It’s easy to play any musical instrument:

all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time

and the instrument will play itself.

Johan Sebastian Bach


My young adults, tired of hearing ads interrupt the music streaming on my free Spotify, finally gifted me a family subscription.  I’m proud to report I’ve been enjoying it, keeping their bluetooth speakers busy while they’re away from home, playing loud music until the husband comes home and shuts down my party of one (unless you count the rabbit as fellow party animal.)

When they do come home, I’m always amazed at how quickly they can mouth the lyrics of new pop and rap songs that I barely understand, which is just as well because the few words I do pickup I’d rather not add to my vocabulary anyway. Life is hard as it is and I prefer earworms that remind me to be happy, strong and powerful.  With Spotify’s algorithm identifying global top 200 streamed songs as gloomiest in February, why not create our own playlist of positivity and serenade ourselves with uplifting words and beats that make us want to dance and smile naughtily? I wish someone had told me in my youth that we are better off dedicating love songs to our own reflection on every kind of mirror.

To celebrate true love on Valentine’s, I dedicate my first Spotify playlist to my young adults and to you. May we never forget that the truest love we will ever find on this earth is the love we give ourselves, the truest power that which we exercise starting right where we are!

    Once again the blog has me thinking. Love songs are a favorite of mine and now that I have a Spotify account (including the ads) It started my mind wandering to music I’d forgotten about. For instance, Nat King Cole. I recall being around 10 years old and discovering a catalog of his albums in my house. Listening to them, I really enjoyed his songs. So in keeping with the theme I’ll add some songs with a personal meaning. Nat King Cole, “An Affair To Remember” . Just a bit of naughty Jackson Browne’s, “The Naked Ride Home”, I’ll just leave it to the imagination ;). The most beautiful female singing voice I’ve ever heard, Linda Ronstadt, “Adios” how can there be love songs without sadness and goodbye. Lastly one of my favorites is a movie theme song “Doe Eyes” (Love theme from The Bridges of Madison County reprise version), see the movie too, a nice way to spend part of a Valentine’s day watching a love story.

    My favorite photo of this beautiful Goddess is number two, her hair and those gorgeous blue eyes. I’ll bet she creates beautiful music!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!
